    Umm, now if the service and value for the dollar was the same as others then we might take notice. Air Canada has been cutting services, leaving people to find alternative ways to complete travel for years. Now why should anyone be too worried about these job cuts? We do not want to pay more for less.

    I am forced to fly Air Canada at least once a month. You think that I should not be given money back for being placed in a cab to make a connection 3 hours away, or better yet have Air Canada pay wages lost when they cancel return flights and bump people to flights a week after the paid in advance return date?

    Come on now. If West Jet can start up new air lines and routes, it just goes to show that Air Canada workers are bleeding us all with out of scope wages that we wind up paying for with increased air fares and new extra bag charges just to name a few.

    Take a wage cut, pay for your own accomidation and meals, then you have something to cry about. People need to look at the long term, not the me me me outlook that we all have held for years.

    In response to Here We Go from St. John's. Did you know that AC flight attendants have already taken a 13 percent wage cut and recinded numurous benefits, including vacation time. They have also given up many provisions to their working conditions in an effort to help the company sustain viability.

    And please explain to me why it is okay for the executives at AC to line their pockets with miliions in bonuses, while their front line employees bare the burden of rising fuel costs? Perhaps some trimming at the executive level could help ease the pain of operating costs.

    The government and in turn the media, are constantly bombarding us with the need to draw workers back East. But with the attractive salaries being paid to the west of us, it is a hard sell. We should not let these 187 positions go. These people WANT to be here. This is their home and they wish to stay, chosing to live, raise families and pay taxes here.
